I love this gym because it has enough equipment for everyone, it doesnt get too crowded and you dont have to wait just to use the machines. The staffs are very accomodating and they will approach you if you are having a hard time using some of the equipments. The locker room, CR, shower room are always clean. The sauna/steam room are great!

To shed a few pounds, I thought of going to the gym. I was not looking for a long-term commitment to a gym though, so when Gold's Gym had a promo through Metrodeal, I thought, Perfect! Just what I was looking for.

Their trial membership included 10 visits, consumable within two months, and access to all their facilities and classes.

We chose their Waltermart North EDSA branch since that was the most convenient for us. On our first day, we were briefed by a personable young man named Orly Natividad. Before we began exercising, he asked us if he could discuss membership first. We got a bit worried that it would lead to us being pressured to become members. To prevent that, I took the initiative and told him "Okay, as long as you won't pressure us into signing up." He didn't. He just explained the different annual rates for their branch.

[Note: I've removed the rates I posted earlier as per Gold's Gym's request. According to the marketing manager, it's their policy not to post their rates online. If you're interested in becoming a member, please call them up instead to inquire about the prices.]

Payments can be through cash or monthly installments via credit card with 0% interest.

To me, the rates of Gold's Gym Waltermart North EDSA are pretty reasonable given the brand's popularity. Moreover, according to Orly, the Waltermart North EDSA branch offers the lowest rate among all their branches. The location is good too, very convenient. Waltermart is along EDSA, just a few steps away from the Munoz/Roosevelt LRT station. The gym is located inside the mall but is open early morning until late at night. According to their Web site, gym hours are as follows:
Monday-Friday 6am-12mn
Saturday 6am-9pm
Sunday 8am-9pm

Gym Equipment
In the middle of the workout area is a boxing ring. A glass case nearby contains the boxing gloves. We never saw anyone sparring inside the ring though. Most of the time it was used by people who were doing mat or ball exercises.

Treadmills and elliptical trainers are on one part of the room, near the lobby. In front of them are several large-screen TVs that play different TV shows. At the back of the treadmills and the trainers are glass walls. To maintain privacy, the middle section of these glass walls are frosted such that outsiders can only see the feet of the users as they use the equipment.

On the left side of the room are the weightlifting equipment -- dumbbells, barbells, and other weights -- as well as punching bags. This part of the gym is occupied mostly by men. There are a lot of stationary bikes and every now and then new equipment are introduced. The treadmills are pretty popular with the gym goers and are always full during early nights. Except for the treadmills, one does not have to wait long to use a particular equipment even during peak hours.

Mirrors line the walls of the gym, helping people check out their form as they work out, while a small inner room is used for classes (yoga, zumba, etc). There are a lot of equipment but moving around is not difficult. Many of the machines are intuitive to use and some have visual guides on how to use them and what muscles they target.

Locker Room
A custodian maintains the ladies' locker room so it is always clean and dry. There are several large mirrors and a hairdryer is also available. You can choose any of the lockers but you have to bring your own padlock.

There is a water fountain inside the locker room so you don't have to buy or bring your own water. Just take frequent water breaks or bring a water bottle to refill.

These shots were taken when I miraculously had the whole locker room to myself one late night:

The Crowd
The bulk of the gym users we encountered were young - in their 20s and early 30s, many of which were already slim and fit. Everyone was serious with his workout, which was quite motivating for us. I didn't see anyone just sitting and talking or just trying to be cute. Everyone was there to get results!

Repost. Really? Actually I already inquired and I'm willing to try their starting promo.

I mentioned in my past review's comments thread that sometimes they don't play music in the morning. Guess what? They did it again this morning. 128532

I saw the plastic cups too. They all looked used. 128532

And when I was about to get my card from them, the trainer who's at the front desk didn't even ask me what I want. I was just there standing, waiting for someone to give my card back. 128532

I won't renew my membership. Time to buy my own gym equipment! 9996127881

The water fountain was out of service so the gym provided a water dispenser which is cool because at least, they still have water to offer.

The disgusting thing about it is that they RECYCLE the plastic cups being used!

Terrible! Come on Gold's Gym, you guys are better than that. So disgusting.

This Gold's Gym in Waltermart North Edsa is probably one of the "real" gyms in the metro. No chattin, walang tambay, etc. Puro buhat lang talaga!

The trainers are really friendly too. When I first started months ago, they taught me different programs to help me get in shape. They monitored me for an entire week. And it didn't cost me a dime. Talk about dedication in making their customers healthy and awesome-looking!

Not a lot of people go here in the morning. But this place gets packed in the evening.

I'm paying 1.3k a month for 1 whole year. That's a total of 144 visits (3 times a week). Not bad at all. My advice: don't get the unlimited visits. It's not like you'll be working out 7 days a week.

Gold's Gym all the way! :)
